Climate Smart Farming At A Glance
Farmers are in a unique position to be part of the solution to combat climate change. Understanding their challenges to adopt sustainable farming practices is crucial to help them reduce emissions and increase farm resilience.
This is why we care about climate smart farming. We work to support farmers in decreasing their environmental impact, improving farm resilience, and sequestering carbon in the soil. Moreover, we believe that partnerships are the cornerstone to accelerate the path towards carbon neutrality in the food value chain.
What target did we set for ourselves?
What impacts do we aim for to reach this target?
Reduced on-farm carbon footprint
Improved soil health
Preserve natural resources
Monetize CO2e efficiencies
What is our approach?
We are helping farmers tackle the most pressing climate challenges with the right combination of technologies. Our technologies include
nitrogen management products that improve fertilizer efficiency
innovative fungicide products that enhance and maintain yields when the crop plants are under pathogen attack
new forms of chemical and biological insecticides that have a more gentle effect on the environment
herbicide products that enable minimum tillage, reducing both carbon emissions from the soil and diesel use
new crop varieties that enhance yield and are more stress-resilient
natural biological inoculants and
innovative digital solutions.
How do we contribute to the needed transformation of the agri-food system?
Managing the climate crisis is an absolute priority of our industry and directly related to nature loss. To contribute to the transformation of the agri-food system, our commitment to climate smart farming centers on the key change drivers of sustainable agriculture.
Our work is focused on emissions reductions and carbon sequestration, soil health, and biodiversity.
Our integrated offers enable farmers and agricultural value chains to transition to climate smart farming. We understand these as a systems approach that can achieve more than the sum of its parts: an ecosystem of innovative solutions and practices, which we leverage through our and our partners’ know-how to synergically drive farm profitability, climate resilience, CO2e savings and optimal resource use at the same time. In other words, to achieve “better yield”.
